Hi everyone, Anja here today with a card featuring the new Besties set from the April release.
First, I created a sunset background with Distress Oxide Inks. I blended together Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and a little bit of Seedless Preserves at the top. For some texture, I flicked on water droplets and ink splatters. To add sparkle, I heavily misted the whole background with shimmer spray and set it away to dry.
Next, I picked some matching cardstock colors and cut them with the Gallery Frame #2 Die.
I also die cut a grass border from that peach cardstock using one of the Grassy Knoll Dies. Onto the dark razzleberry cardstock rectangle, I stamped the beautiful sentiment with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
I stamped the sitting bunny and bear in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic markers. I also drew in some lines with a black Copic Multi Liner to give the bear a striped shirt. Finally, I assembled my card and popped up both images with foam tape.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous week!
Cute images, and gorgeous background! I never would have thought to blend dried marigold with the other colors, but now it’s on my must-have list. You mention that you misted the whole background with shimmer spray — who make the shimmer spray? TIA.
Thank you for your kind words, Valerie! I made my own shimmer spray by adding a couple of InkOn3 Liquid Pixie Dust drops to a water-filled Mini Mister bottle by Ranger. Hope this helps 🙂
